Over 10,700 Bobcat and Truck Combos for Hire on iseekplant

iSeekplant is the premier online marketplace in Australia, connecting construction professionals with a wide range of construction equipment and services. With a vast catalog of equipment from over 25,000 verified suppliers in commercial and civil construction, we offer a huge selection of bobcat and truck combos for hire.

Bobcat and truck combos are extremely useful for jobs that require both excavation and transportation of materials, spoil or soil. A bobcat, more accurately known as a skid steer loader, is a compact and agile machine designed for digging, lifting, and loading materials, whereas a truck is used for transporting these materials to and from the worksite. Many Bobcat and Truck combos can also include a mini excavator for digging and trenching applications.

Wet and Dry Hire Bobcat and Truck Combo Rates

Rates for Bobcat & Truck Combos

Bobcat and Truck combos are available for wet hire (with operator) and dry hire (without operator). However, wet hire is more common and involves the combo coming to your jobsite and undertaking tasks at your instruction with a qualified operator of both the truck and the bobcat (and the mini excavator, which is also often included). Dry hire is relatively uncommon but some operators will hire to you on that basis. Here are the average hire rates (which are our best guesses, vary greatly by region and exclude GST):

Combo TypeAvg. Dry Hire Rates (per hour)Min. Dry Hire HoursAvg. Wet Hire Rates (per hour)Min. Wet Hire Hours
